    Default Reel for TFO 5wt ?

    I got a TFO pro2 5 wt 8.6' rod. Looking at spending $100 +/- Any suggestions ? I'm going to a fly expo tomorrow and hope to find a deal. I do have a Cortland Retro 1 and a Pflueger Trion 34 and am thinking of just getting spare spools for them but will they hold a 5wt and if so how much backing ? I'm using this for small stream sml.mouth bass. Thanks.

    I will suggest the LL bean Quest LA reel in size 2. I just got one in and it fits my 8'6'' 5wt perfectly.

    First thought that comes to mind in that price range for that rod

    1) Allen trout if they are at the show. I have one on my Zaxis and it is solid for the price

    2) Lamson Konic II , solid drag and with the new coating to protect it from dings since it is a cast reel.
